After two years of hosting EUA-CDE events online, the long-awaited first physical conference since January 2020 is just around the corner. The 2022 EUA-CDE Annual Meeting, “Time and timing in doctoral education”, will take place at the University of Manchester, UK, on 22-24 June and you are cordially invited to register now.
Time plays an important role in doctoral education in a variety of dimensions. The average length of a doctorate, time to degree, duration of funding, part-time doctorates and timelines are all structuring elements of doctoral education. Time management is considered a key skill for doctoral candidates and those responsible for doctoral schools and programmes need to deal with time as a limited resource to respond to a multiplicity of demands. These and many other issues relating to time and the timing of doctoral education will be at the heart of this flagship meeting of the EUA Council for Doctoral Education.
I would also like to remind you that EUA-CDE members are invited to propose contributions for the parallel and poster sessions. For more information, please refer to the full call for contributions. The deadline to contribute is 20 April 2022.
Given that many of our members have not had the opportunity to meet in person over the past two years, this year we have made it possible for national and regional doctoral education networks to meet before the Annual Meeting. If you are interested in organising such a meeting, please contact us before 1 May 2022 at email@example.com. Please note that available rooms for such meetings are limited.
The deadline for early-bird registrations is 25 April 2022. After this date, standard registration fees will apply.
For further information about the programme and the registration process, please consult the event page. An updated programme with confirmed speakers will follow by the beginning of April.
To stay up-to-date on the Annual Meeting, follow us on Twitter under @EUACDE and/or subscribe to the EUA-CDE newsletter.
I look forward to meeting you again in person in Manchester in June.
Dr Alexander Hasgall,
